This is almost a RELIGIOUS experience to eat. One of the few great things about traveling for a profession, is the ability to pursue the quest for "The Perfect Steak." NY steaks are too complicated and "vertical," Chicago can be bland, California adds overwhelming spices. Best so far has been found at "Marysville House"- the one remaining establishment in a ghost mining town about 30 miles outside of Helena, MT*. Have been trying to recreate it for years. Find an outstanding butcher - NOT at your grocery store. Pick the most marbled, aged filets. *Post-scripts: My friend from Helena just told me that Marysville House sold, and isn't nearly as good any more 8**(. For an extra decadence, top with a compound butter made from butter, Gorgonzola cheese, garlic, and basil. THIS should be illegal 8).
